Several members of the club traveled to Bellingham for the 49th Annual WWU Bill Roe Cross Country Classic on September 23 at Lake Padden Park. This is a competitive meet, featuring top college talent in the region.

Lake Sammamish Run Club brought 6 men and 5 women, allowing us to field full teams for both the 6K women’s race and the 8K men’s race. Although there was no master’s division, our upper age groups were well-represented.

The weather was cool and cloudy for the start of the women’s race. The LSRC team got to the line with not a moment to spare before roll call, adding some pre-race excitement for the fans. Our front runners made some impressive passing throughout the race. Every member scored points, resulting in our placing just ahead of Hawai'i Hilo and beating out 3 teams who were unable to field full rosters.

Women's Team Results:

  1. University of Victoria (54)
  2. Western Washington (72)
  3. Saint Martin's (94)
  4. Simon Fraser (112)
  5. Alaska Fairbanks (117)
  6. Club Northwest (152)
  7. Alaska Anchorage (173)
  8. Seattle Pacific (188)
  9. Trinity Western (219)
  10. Central Washington (275)
  11. Lake Sammamish Run Club (330)
  12. Hawai'i Hilo (347) 

The LSRC men were ready at the line, just in time for a dramatic increase in wind speeds of up to 14 mph – making for a fast start and some challenging headwinds on the early loops. Our two front runners were involved in an early stumble, but it did not slow them down and solid performances were delivered by the whole team. Some excellent strategies were employed throughout the race, and points were scored by every member. While the men’s team placed last, they edged out 3 teams lacking full rosters – underscoring the value of all who showed up to race for LSRC.

Men's Team Results:

  1. Western Washington (47)
  2. Alaska Anchorage (62)
  3. Simon Fraser (85)
  4. Victoria (93)
  5. Club Northwest (149)
  6. Premature Acceleration (155)
  7. Saint Martin's (206)
  8. Seattle Pacific (244)
